Self in Houston to watch recruits

The second day of the Houston Kingwood Classic kicked off at 8:00 this morning and the final game didn't tip-off until 4:10. Bill Self arrived early on Saturday and walked from gym-to-gym checking out some key prospects.

Morgan Plays In-Front Of High-Majors:

Its amazing how much has truly changed for J'Mison Morgan, the 6-foot-10 big man from South Oak Cliff High School in Dallas, Texas. Playing in front of quite a few high major coaches, including Bill Self, Morgan didn't disappoint.

Morgan, the No. 83 ranked player in the class of 2008, is quite a different player since dropping quite a bit of weight. In the morning session, the four-star prospect scored eight-first half points and, at times, looked downright sensational.

Morgan finished the game with 10-points, but that number could have easily been 20, as the talented post player missed several bunnies and had trouble converting down low on a number of occasions.

Offensively, Morgan still needs to become a complete player, but he certainly has the ability to be a force in the low-post area. He displayed several nice moves in the paint on Saturday morning, but didn't do so on a regular basis. Being consistent on the offensive end of the court will be key for Morgan.
